July 2021: The Summer Slide

Our July 2021 Awareness Campaign is all about The Summer Slide. Have you heard of the “Summer Slide?” The "Summer Slide" is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn’t in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don’t read during summer vacation, actually slip in reading ability by the time school rolls around. Beat the Summer Slide with helpful resources that we can send to you via email, and by encouraging your child to devote a small bit of time each day to keep up their skills. Please let us know if you would like us to send this information to you - call us at 561.514.3300.
